If you own a HTC Sensation or Sensation XE you may have had a nice surprise when you turned your handset on this morning, Android 4.0! HTC have announced on their official blog that the roll-out of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich update) to its top-end handsets has already begun. 

“As for timing, we’re in the early stages of rolling out Android 4.0 for the HTC Sensation and HTC Sensation XE and upgrades will be more widely available in the next few weeks,” the blog says.

The Android 4.0 update for these smartphones is rolling out now and there are many more handsets to follow, the handsets guaranteed to get the upgrade at some point in 2012 are as follows:

•             DROID Incredible 2

•             HTC Amaze 4G

•             HTC Desire S

•             HTC Desire HD

•             HTC EVO 3D

•             HTC EVO Design 4G

•             HTC Incredible S

•             HTC Sensation

•             HTC Sensation XL

•             HTC Sensation 4G

•             HTC Sensation XE

•             HTC Raider

•             HTC Rezound

•             HTC Rhyme

•             HTC Thunderbolt

•             HTC Vivid

 

Unfortunately, at what point in 2012 your handset will get this update is unclear because it is all dependant on how long it takes your carrier to arrange the roll-out across its network, so unlocked handsets will get the update first.

Yesterday Samsung also started upgrading its handsets, with the Galaxy S II gaining an Ice Cream Sandwich update whilst the Galaxy S will be upgraded to Gingerbread with extras.  These include face-unlocking and a photo editor. The Samsung Note tablet will also receive an upgrade to Android 4.  Although users in Poland, Sweden, Korea and Hungary are starting to see the updates being offered here in the UK users will have to wait another week or two before they can unlock their phones with a smile.
